Sunday Evening Stroll

 It has been a gloriously warm and sunny day today.

We finally finished clearing out our old home after an early 8 a.m. start and arrived back here in time for morning coffee by 10:30.

A walk into town after lunch to buy fruit and sit on a bench with an ice cream then lots more unpacking and sorting out.

After supper P suggested a short stroll as the sun was still shining and because easy access to walks was the main reason for moving.

It only took one hour ...

  1. Is Ramsey named after Sir Alf Ramsey - the former England football manager? I wonder why they didn't call the town Alf instead.

    1. The name comes from the Old Norse hrams-á meaning wild garlic River. It certainly lived up to its name yesterday evening.

    1. We gave away a lot of it in preparation for the move to the house we were supposed to be buying. Luckily we kept enough to bring with us as this place is let unfurnished.

  5. Fantastic to have that right on your doorstep. I bet you ‘use it’ a lot while you’re in that neighbourhood. Hopefully that’s where your next permanent home will be as well

    1. Perhaps I should ask the Tourism Dept for a commission!

  7. It looks nice and flat terrain to take a saunter and a stroll.

    1. The prom was indeed a good, flat walk but we walked up the hill at the end to The Hairpin bend on the TT course, which is just behind our house.

  9. IoM certainly does look like a beautiful island - be careful how well you sell it. An invasion of tourists might not enhance the peace and beauty of the place. (Although I guess the island can cope, as it does during the TT - Mr B has taught me to watch that on TV). xxx Mr T

    1. Ah, but I only photograph the good bits. Perhaps I should do a post on the ugly stuff too?

  13. You have settled in nicely, JayCee. Glad you are enjoying your new home. I wonder if you could or would offer to buy the place you are renting? Would that be a possibility?
    It will be nice, tho, to explore and find your next best place!

    1. Funnily enough P did suggest that but I can see that it would not really be practical in the longer term. The layout and steep plot would be a problem as we get older but it is great for now.
